  • Frontiers of Climate Modeling

    The physics and dynamics of the atmosphere and atmosphere-ocean interactions provide the foundation of modern climate models, upon which our understanding of the chemistry and biology of ocean and land surface processes are built. Frontiers of Climate Modeling captures modern developments in modeling the atmosphere, and their implications for our ...

  • Modelling Ocean Climate Variability

    In this wide-ranging and comprehensive review of the historical development and current status of ocean circulation models, the analysis extends from simple analytical approaches to the latest high-resolution numerical models with data assimilation. The authors, both of whom are pioneer scientists in ocean and shelf sea modelling, look back at the ...

  • Modeling Dynamic Climate Systems

    The dynamics of the atmosphere, ocean, and climate are inherently nonlinear and complex, making computer models ideal for accurate, complete understanding of these systems. In the process of building and using models, the reader of this book will learn how the different components of climate systems function, interact with each other, and vary ...

  • Marine Climate and Climate Change

    Marine environmental conditions such as storms, storm surges and wave heights are directly experienced by, for example, off-shore operations or coastal populations. The authors review and bring together the state-of-the-art and present day knowledge about historical changes, recent trends and concepts on how marine environmental conditions may ...

  • Detecting and Modelling Regional Climate Change

    For the very first time, this book provides updated, integrated and organized, theoretical and methodological information on regional climate change and the associated environmental and socio-economic impacts on a regional scale. The most recent findings in the field of long-term climate change, which improve our understanding of the global ...

  • The Climate of Israel

    This book describes in detail the distribution of different climates within Israel. These range from overall trends that fit into climate models for Europe and the Mediterranean, to studies of urban climates and air quality, the interplay between local winds and air pollution, forecasting, and rainfall stimulation that is of course very important ...

  • Mediterranean Climate

    This is the first volume in the series 'Regional Climate Studies'. It presents the analysis of climatological data from 500 years b.c. to the present day. It discusses climate variablity and its interaction with the biosphere in the Mediterranean area. Different approaches are applied to describe and interpret climate variability and to denote ...

  • Climate Change

    Following the style and spirit of the IOC Forum series, this book provides the non-specialist with the basic scientific background and information essential for understanding the complex processes that bring about climate change. This book is a valuable aid, facilitating public and private debate - and rational decision-making. The authors explain ...

  • Numerical Modeling of the Global Atmosphere in the Climate System

    A broad, up to date treatment of the science of climate prediction. Topics covered include the use of atmospheric general circulation models (AGCMs) as tools for studying climate variability and predicting change, the design and analysis of AGCM experiments, the components of an AGCM (especially numerical techniques, representation of ...

  • Remote Sensing and Climate Modeling: Synergies and Limitations

    This book for the first time covers state-of-the-art research in two domains which are largely complementary, but which have until now not made optimum use of their complementarity: remote sensing techniques and climate models. The material presented in the book covers such diverse areas within satellite remote sensing techniques as aerosol ...

  • The Climate in Historical Times

    The project 'Climate in Historical Times' (KIHZ) represents an integrative approach by geoscientists and climate modellers to analyse the dynamics of natural climate variability during the Holocene. This volume summarises the outcome of a KIHZ summer school. The meeting dealt with a variety of topics related to natural climate variability, ranging ...

  • Glaciers and Climate Change

    In this text meteorology and the theory of glacier flow are brought together, providing a basic understanding of how glaciers respond to climate change. Attention is given to the microclimate of glaciers and the physical processes that regulate the exchange of energy and mass between glacier surface and atmosphere. Simple analytical and numerical ...

  • Wind Climate in Cities

    If one surveys the development of wind engineering, one comes to the conclusion that the challenge of urban climatology is one of the most important remaining tasks for the wind engineers. But what distinguishes wind engineering in urban areas from conventional wind engineering? Principally, the fact that the effects studied are usually ...

  • Stochastic Climate Theory

    The author describes the stochastic (probabilistic) approach to the study of changes in the climate system. Climatic data and theoretical considerations suggest that a large part of climatic variation/variability has a random nature and can be analyzed using the theory of stochastic processes. This work summarizes the results of processing ...
